Greek history comes alive for Manor Primary School pupils

Ancient Greek history came alive for Year 3 pupils at Manor Primary School on Monday.


Pupils are ready for battle as ancient Greeks at Manor Primary School.

They dressed in costumes of the time, battled on the school playground, tried on armour that would have been worn in those days and learned about Greek myths.

Activities were led by Hands on History, an organisation dedicated to bringing history to life in the most entertaining and realistic way possible.
